Weil Earns 2018 “Litigation Department of the Year” Honorable Mention from The American Lawyer

The Firm was named as one of ten Runners-Up in Am Law’s biennial contest

Weil was one of just ten firms nationwide that received an Honorable Mention in the General Litigation category in The American Lawyer’s “Litigation Department of the Year” competition for 2018.

As the publication noted, “[t]hese 10 runner-up law firms handled groundbreaking cases, got results that made headlines, and saved clients from uncertain futures.” In a profile on Weil’s accomplishments over the past two years, The American Lawyer highlighted “high-impact” cases, such as our Second Circuit victory for Marsh & McLennan that affirmed a company’s right to terminate employees who refuse to cooperate with internal investigations, and our pro bono work that helped bring an end to indefinite solitary confinement in California prisons.

Weil has been recognized as a Finalist for this category in 2004 and 2010, and as an Honorable Mention in 2006, 2008, and 2012.
